I also just cleaned out my friends list. I only removed those who seem to be defunct journals, i.e., I haven't seen posts or comments from ya in recent memory. I don't post a lot of locked entries, so if you want to lurk, you won't miss much. If you really want to be added back, comment here.
Also, if you've friended me, and I haven't friended you back, it's probably because I don't really know why I was friended. I.e., and you arrrre...? Let me know how you know me, and I'll most likely reciprocate. ^_^
